I really enjoy sitting in our screened in porch. The first day I was at the cabin I was really taken by the light yellow green of the leaves where they caught the sun. As I first looked at the scene I felt that I was seeing a light greenish tinge to the whole scene so I began this painting by covering the entire sheet of paper with a very light yellowish green wash. I let this dry and then did the painting. So what appears to be the white highlights along the trunk are actually a light yellow green wash.
